The We Five song is called "You Were on My Mind" Is this show public domain by the way?

No Momma or Poppas,
But the "We Five" with a hit called "I've Got Trouble", which I kind of remember. Pretty sure a one hit wonder. The Palace is a good variety show. I watched them as a 10 year old growing up in small tow, redneck Louisiana, with only 2 stations to watch. They kept me entertained.

Brings back memories
A great episode of a great variety show from a bygone era. Brings back memories of when I was working as an usher at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the L.A. Music Center and saw the great Nuryev perform "Swan Lake"... he was awesome. Another memory of meeting Fred Astaire on a street corner in Beverly Hills waiting to cross the street. I said, "Hi Fred, I love your movies." I then began singing to him..."I joined the Navy to see the world, and what did I see, I saw the sea. I saw the Atlantic and the Pacific but the Pacific wasn't terrific, and the Atlantic isn't what its cracked up to be..." I thought he was going to collapse he was laughing so hard. He said, "What's your name, young man?" I told him my name is Bob. He said, "Bob, you just made my day." I'll never forget that moment. This download is a good one, with funny bits from Paul Lynde and Jackie Mason. Slightly out of sync, but not enough to ruin the enjoyment of the show.
